The Saturn analog controller is now fully
functional thanks to more work with Tom Berrodin.
diodes are standard signal (1N914) diodes:
To identify pin 1 on the Saturn controller
plug, hold the plug right-side up and look at the
pins. The leftmost pin is pin 1, the rightmost is
The Saturn interface had to be modified
slightly to support analog controllers. If you've
built one already, the modification to make your
old one match the schematic is simple:
- Remove the diode from pin DB25-4
- Remove the connections between the DB9-4
and DB9-9 of both pads.
(i.e. DB9-4 is no longer connected to
DB25-5, just DB25-4 without the diode.)
- Wire pin DB25-4 straight through to both
If you're just running a digital pad and have
an interface built already, it will still work.
It just won't support plugging an analog
controller into it.
